The United States and China, the world’s largest carbon pollutants, have agreed to cooperate with other countries to combat climate change. This agreement has been reached between the two countries at a time when President Joe Biden of the US will host a digital summit with world leaders to discuss climate change.
Biden has invited 40 leaders of the world, including Chinese President Xi Jinping, to the summit to be held on 22 and 23 April. A joint statement said US Special Envoy for Climate Change related matters John Kerry and his Chinese counterpart Shi Zhenhua reached an agreement during a two-day meeting in Shanghai last week.
Committed to cooperation
The statement said, ‘America and China are committed to cooperate with each other and other countries to deal with the climate crisis. This crisis must be dealt with seriously and immediately. ”China and the United States are the world’s largest carbon pollutants. Their cooperation is crucial to the success of global efforts to combat climate change, but human relations violations, trade and China’s claims on the South China Sea and Taiwan have strained the relationship between the two countries.
Kerry’s visit is the first visit by a high-level US official to China since Biden took over as president in January. Former US Secretary of State Kerry left South Korea from Shanghai. Kerry told reporters here on Sunday that China is the most coal-using country in the world. Kerry said that he and Chinese officials discussed a lot about accelerating the process of change in the field of global energy.
